Petal Pizzazz!!!

I woke up this morning and just had to make this card. This past week my son was home sick. He spent a lot of time sleeping on our bed. I spent a lot of time watching him sleep and staring at his gorgeous little face. But I also noticed our bedspread had some really pretty colors in it and the wheels in my head got to turning. The colors of my bedspread inspired me to make this card.
I used Petal Pizzazz Stamp set, which I totally LOVE! I just got it and have a million ideas for it!

I also used Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink Cardstock and the Write Stuff Designer Paper for the Olive Polka Dot paper.
The inks used were:
Rose Red
Pretty in Pink
Old Olive
So Saffron
Brilliant Blue {retiring)and
Certainly Celery which was also stamped on the Certainly Celery Cardstock for a monochromatic effect.

Topped it off with a Rose Red 1 inch ribbon. I love this Ribbon!

I left it sentiment free until I know who I will use the card for. The inside is decorated as well.

I love this stamp set!!!

Isn't it funny how little things can inspire us!
Have a Happy Mother's Day!
